86% Review Toshiba Tecra S11-11H Notebook | Notebookcheck
Workstation Lite. The Tecra S11 is intended to be a workstation computer, according to Toshiba. But it is questionable whether its Nvidia Quadro NVS 2100M graphics card will satisfy the performance-orientated user. At least Toshiba has gone all out on the processor, opting for a i5-520M or i7-620M.

Toshiba reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA NVS 2100M:

Business graphics card that should be based on the GT218 core (e.g. GeForce 210M) but with drivers that are optimized for stability and compatibility in business applications). Compared to the NVS 3100, the 2100 features a lower clock speed.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

520M:

The Core i5-520M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.4-2.93 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.


15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.64 kg:


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
